Merry Christmas to All

front, closed

When I saw the new tryfold cards by Art Impressions, I had to have this one called Sleepy Santa (and maybe one or two others as well).  It comes with stamping position directions, which I didn't follow the first time I stamped these three images.  Oh well, at least I can use the images separately too.

inside, open
As you can probably guess from the inside view, I used Copic markers to color all the images.  If it bothers you that the colors bleed through, you can always adhere a piece of cardstock to cover it up.

I used Twinkling Clouds flock from Sparkle N Sprinkle on Santa's trim as well as the white trim winding around the Christmas tree.   The ornaments are colored with Spica glitter pens.

right panel

Twinkling Clouds was also applied to the white areas of the stockings that were hung with care.

The sentiment is part of the set and was stamped with Colorbox Gold pigment ink.

This is my wish to all of you too.  Have a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year's.
